Free Literature Offered On New NABRICO Hand Winch

An all-new hand winch especially designed for use on barges, towboats and for other winch applications requiring significant holding capacity, has been introduced by Nashville Bridge Company (NABRICO), Nashville, Tenn.

Off all-steel construction, the mini-profile design winch has a 40-ton holding capacity. Additionally, both right- and left-hand models are available for the increased safety of the operator, according to T. Ray Jackson, company vice president-materials.

An attractive feature of the unit is an accompanying NABRICO "D" ring which allows the winch to be swiveled a full 180 degrees. "This feature," said Mr. Jackson, "and the maneuverability it allows, will be very useful to the marine industry." The new winch employs many features of the original NABRICO hand winch, including a quick-release action, a hand wheel for fast takeup and a foot brake for run-out control. Many parts for the new winch are interchangeable with parts for other NABRICO winches for easy repair or replacement, and all parts are available from NABRICO and many of its distributors.

Headquartered in Nashville, NABRICO is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The American Ship Building Company, Tampa, Fla. The company has been in the marine field for more than 70 years, and offers a complete line of deck hardware for towboats, barges and terminals serving the marine industry.
